The Pirates have had a difficult time finding consistency this season. They hope that got fixed following a 4-2 loss to Thief River Falls Friday in Crookston, but rebounded Saturday, overcoming a broken down bus on the trip to Baudette, Minn., to beat Lake of the Woods 9-0.
The Crookston bus broke down somewhere near Thief River Falls Saturday morning and the team was able to borrow a bus from Thief River Falls to continue their trip.
The Pirates are now 10-10 on the season and will host Fargo North Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. They will travel to East Grand Forks Thursday for a key section matchup against the Green Wave.
